Its asparagus season again and the third year since we planted ours in the garden. The harvest is small but every few days we have a handful of asparagus spears ready to eat. They are so good they need little done to them, so we have been lightly steaming them or eating them topped with a poached egg. They really are something special.

bread hogs

These bread hogs came from a recipe in the Peppa Pig magazine. We will certainly make them again as the children really enjoyed making the hedgehog shapes and sticking on the eyes. I must admit they look better than they taste but they provided a few hours of playtime.

snakes

Back on to pipe cleaners, we tried our hand at a few snakes. I think they worked out quite well.

Left over chicken sandwich

Another cheap meal made from the remains of a roast chicken, grilled red peppers and plenty of crunchy salad in a crusty roll.

leftover stir fry

Another meal made from leftover roast chicken. This one just has the leftover leg and thigh meat for a bit more flavour. Strips of red cabbage pepper and some noodles.

sea bass

This is grilled sea bass with basil pesto and grilled tomatoes. It works really well and gets the thumbs up as a dish which takes less than 15 minutes to cook.

spiders

These pipe cleaner spiders were just the thing to do on a recent rainy day. They just require a few pipe cleaners cut up for the legs and some self adhesive eyes and were played with for a good few hours afterwards.

beetroot soup

Another experiment with the soup maker. This time its beetroot soup. It contains beetroot, carrots, leeks, a stock cube and seasoning. Finished with a little feta cheese on the top, its not the most attractive dish but tastes quite good.
